Synthpop / New wave / Dreampop. Leitbur (“light-brr”) is Jaron Widman and Samantha Krzyston of Los Angeles.
A graphic artist, video editor, film school alum, and lover of vintage synthesizers, Widman turned to music production as a creative outlet while studying in Seattle and LA.
Leitbur was formed in 2007 as a produced-by-email electronic rock project with Widman’s brother, Jonathan, but it later evolved into a solo venture that combines synthpop, electro shoegaze, 80s new wave, chillwave, and nu-disco.
In 2012, he began collaborating with his fiancée, Chicago-to-LA transplant Samantha Krzyston.
